FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas’ participation at the Trans-Miss Championships in Denver, Colo., and at the Southern Amateur in Birmingham, Ala., came to a close with the third round of the Trans-Miss and second of the Southern Amateur. Senior Jamie Marshall shot 74 and sophomore Austin Cook, 75, to each finish tied for 47th at the Trans-Miss Championship at the Denver Country Club while freshman-to-be Will Pearson and redshirt freshman Joe Doramus finished tied for 98th at the Southern Amateur and missed the cut.
Marshall was one stroke off his scores from both day one and day two for his final score of 220, 10-over par. He remained steady throughout the three days in terms of standings, but was unable to make a move to the top 10 despite leaving himself a good opportunity entering the final day. Cook’s final day was tougher as the Jonesboro, Ark., native dropped 10 places in the final standings with his worst round of the tournament.
In the Southern Amateur at Shoal Creek, Doramus and Pearson each had an opportunity to make the cut with strong first days, but scores of 77 and 76, respectively, saw the Arkansas tandem finish tied for 98th with two-round scores of 148. The cut for the 168-golfer tournament was 145 and included just 66 golfers.
